Dangerous Car Parts

Auto developers and manufacturers have a duty to design, produce, and market safe vehicles, but, oftentimes, they take shortcuts, use poor quality materials, fail to adequately crash test the vehicle, or rush production to maximize profits. In some cases, the resulting defect or design flaw is serious enough to prompt a recall of an entire line of vehicles. However, a recall does not help individuals who have already been seriously injured in a defective car accident. Contact us today to learn more at (301) 932-9997 or 1 (844)-MDCRASH.

Shopping for a car, whether used or new, is a fun and exciting experience. When you see all the cars arranged in long rows on the dealer’s lot, you expect that these vehicles have been meticulously manufactured with high quality materials and have been designed with passenger and driver safety in mind. With this preconception, you find the car you want on the lot and don’t think twice about purchasing it. Then you get it on the road. The car drives great for a short while, and then you start experiencing a wide range of problems that have nothing to do with your driving and everything to do with the manufacture and/or design of the car.

Defective Manufacturing and Design

air bag injury death claim Motor vehicles, whether car, motorcycle, or truck, are complicated machines with a great many parts, both inside and out. They require both mechanical and electrical components and, these days, almost every motor vehicle is regulated by a computer. The chassis or body structure must be built to withstand the stress of everyday driving, not to mention non-everyday incidents like inclement weather and accidents, as well as to hold together the doors, windows, and other integral parts.

This does not even begin to describe the number of parts, mechanisms, and sensors that go into modern cars. The modern car is not perfect, however. The more technology it has, the more features it offers, the more there is that can go wrong, and anything that goes wrong has the potential to cause an injury accident. Some common defects or design flaws found in motor vehicles include:

  • Brake failure;
  • Defective tires;
  • Airbag malfunction;
  • Short circuits;
  • Sudden acceleration/deceleration;
  • Restraint/seatbelt defects;
  • Sensor malfunction;
  • Gas/oil leaks;
  • Poor quality or contaminated materials;
  • Improper road to chassis height;
  • Corrosion;
  • Steering system defects;
  • Poor attachment of parts;
  • Cruise control malfunction; and
  • Engine stalling.
